Print title I Can't Breathe

This piece was inspired by recent movements that make a statement for equal rights. Musa-Kazim’s style was inspired by Shepard Fairey’s abstract style using a contrast of colours that work together to symbolise how everyone from different backgrounds works together as one Human Race.
